and that right now we would all be focusing on the instability in syria. >> rose: where do you think it is today in a broad sense terms of its power to dominate 2012? >> the arab spring, charlie. >> rose: yes. >> yeah, we talked about this because you and i were together the night mubarak fell in tahrir square. one of the things i remember about being there th week in egypt is that some day i would love to design a journalism course just aut that week. because i don't remember if we talked about in in cairo, charlie but my rule in that week has been my rule ever since, is that whenever you see elephants fly, shut up and take notes. i felt like in cairo elephants were flying. we were seeing things, when everyone tells me the arab spring is going to be this, going to that be it is going to be wonderful, internal. you didn't see it coming, what makes you think you know where it's going, okay. shut up and take notes. and so that's really my overarching, you know, attitude right now, charlie. what strikes me is several people have pointed this out there was a saying after the russian revolution, demo

more problems with syria. >> absolutely. there are some differences here. president obama wants president assad in syria to step down. prime minister amaliki in walk has not done that president obama basically said that's not because iran is pulling the strings. it's just because prime minister amaliki is trying to assert himself here and he doesn't believe sanctions against syria is the way to go. president obama is trying to hold that up as a sign that iraqis are standing on their own two feet in making a decision. >> big news today from the supreme court. the highest court is now set to rule on a controversial immigration crackdown once and foreall a. the decision may impact similar laws across our nation. the supreme court is taking up arizona's tough new law that targets illegal immigrants in that state. the legislation sparked widespread protests as i'm sure many of you remember. and a lawsuit from the white house. the federal appeals court has blocked several key parts from taking effect. one of those key measures requires police to check the immigration status of people

the beginning. but more importantly, syria, where they are now both on the same side, working with the opposition to overthrow the al-assad regime. though not for the same reasons i don't think. in the case of turkey, i think it's more a personal betrayal of pious side of prime minister aired a gun and the promises he made to aired a gun and didn't the field. the saudi's position is really to eliminate uranian influence in syria and assorted kittie vaden for what happened in iraq, where the american invasion created a shiite dominated government tilting towards iran, from which was a major loss in the saudi constellation and thinking about the arab world. so coming here they are in the same i fighting to overthrow the hussein government. and man, in september, turkey decides that it is going to host a nato early warning antimissile system aimed mostly against uranian. ms publicly puts turkey on the saudi arab sunni side of the saudi iranian conflict. i think that's a major turning point in the whole relationship because that is where turkey commit itself militarily to be in on
or others to take military action. >>> let's talk about syria. given the role the u.s. and nato played in protect civilians, do you think at some point nato or the united states and some coalition of the willing is going to have to go in there and protect civilians in syria? >> you know, i don't want to speculate as to what the conditions might be and raise alarm bells. i am, after all -- i'm not a president, but i'm looking for that job. i do believe that we should act very aggressively to try and encourage the dissidence within syria, to remove assad and to bring a more representative form of government. >> support them militarily if that's what's necessary? >> certainly support them covertly. we should support turkey and saudi arabia as they're putting pressure on syria. i won't rule out military support of some kind but i don't want to describe exactly what we might do paubecause the circumstances can change. but syria is very different than libya. it is the only key ally for iran, its route to the sea. a key satellite to iran. its link also with lebanon. so syria plays a key role

in the fight over the payroll tax cut. >>> also, new allegations of genocide in syria. is the white house reaction tough enough? >>> and iraq's prime minister demands the vice president be brought to justice. >>> down to the wire for republican candidates before the first presidential votes are cast in iowa. some fear a risky stalemate in congress could hurt the republicans' chances of reclaiming the white house. let's discuss what's going on with former u.s. senator from pennsylvania, rick santorum. thanks for coming in. let me get right to the issue of the moment here in washington. are you with house republicans or senate republicans when it comes to extending the payroll tax cut for middle class american families? >> my feeling is that there is a social security trust fund that is used to pay social security benefits or there isn't. and someone who's been on the butt end of many attacks that republicans don't care about social security, the republicans are the ones who are tries to get social security, republicans are the ones who are going to make sure they're not going to stand up a

on yesterday. tension in syria. pakistan. afghanistan. we saw what's going on in egypt. the violence against women in egypt that's brutal right now. so this is a president that even though he'll have a little time to relax, he's going to be on top of the situation, he's going to be briefed on a daily basis. so when you're president of the united states you can never really completely get away from your responsibilities as the commander in chief. he appreciates this. every president does, no matter where they go. >> what has this -- again to our viewers, just crossing over the top of the hour waiting for the president at any moment. they're a little behind schedule. he may be doing some business, has a couple things to sign before he comes out. but wolf, this legislative year, this congress, how is this going to go down now and they end it on another low note, i guess you could possibly say. but there have been a lot of low notes. we were taken to the brink of government shutdown time after time after time again this year. some of the fights and back-and-forth. we've unfortunately become accu

to syria where the foreign press is banned and more than 5,000 syrians have been killed according to the united nations. the presidents assad had the gol that he wasn't to blame for the violence. he said in an exclusive interview with barbara walters. >> do you think that your forces cracked down too hard? >> they're not my forces. they are forces that belong to the government. i don't own the country. >> but you have -- >> reporter:ictatordictators, disassembling for to see. no doubt who he was running the show in syria. >> he's calling the shots. i think bah shar needs to reach out to the people. >> reporter: assad ignored that advice. what does this all upheaval for the region and for the united states? the big fear has always been that well-organized islamic parties, would emerge as the strongest and turn the arab world turns islamic fundament fundamentali fundamentalism. with the first elections taking place, grassroots experience is paying off. it pains to insist their islam is not at odds with democracy. in egypt the muslim brotherhood did win the biggest bloc in this month
into a $14 million mess. look at that. syria may be send ago message to the world. we'll tell you why their annual war games, that's right, annual war games are raising some serious alarm. i'd race down that hill without a helmet. i took some steep risks in my teens. i'd never ride without one now. and since my doctor prescribed lipitor, i won't go without it for my high cholesterol and my risk of heart attack. why kid myself? diet and exercise weren't lowering my cholesterol enough. now i'm eating healthier, exercising more, taking lipitor. numbers don't lie. my cholesterol's stayed down. lipitor is fda approved to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients who have heart disease or risk factors for heart disease. it's backed by over 19 yes of research.

it when it gets here. >> all right. and on syria, what do additional steps to pressure the assad regime mean? what are you talking about there specifically? >> the fact is -- of the matter is that we have throughout this process worked both unilaterally and collectively to increase pressure and isolation on the assad regime. what you've seen is a continuation of horrific acts of violence, needless violence, against the syrian people. and it's clear that every metric shows the situation is moving against assad. defections of the military are on the rise. diplomats have begun leaving their posts and coming out in support of the syrian opposition. the opposition is more unified and more inclusive. the regime has been cut off by the arab league, by its traditional allies and neighbors like turkey, and the regime is under increasing financial duress due to international sanctions and weak domestic economic policies. it is only a matter of time before this regime comes to an end. only fear is holding it together, and governing that is based on fear is always doomed to fail. >> are you talking
there and expand its influence in gaza. i think similar situation may emerge in syria which certainly will be a loss for the iranians if assad falls. i think their relationship with the regime is not just limited to assad. it's also in the security apparatus as well as the fact that even if it becomes a loss to iranians it doesn't automatically translate to a win for everyone else. it's most likely syria will turn into yet another one of the regions that will become a proxy for a major powers to fight each other rather than squarely falling into the capital deals. >> yes? >> henri, you mentioned the crisis that erupted between washington and over turkey's deal with iran on the nuclear issue, particularly the uranium enrichment deal they helped broker with brazil. it seems like when you look at the issue of turkey and the u.s., aside from the obama-erdogan chemistry, turkey stepping away from the iran issue. these being a very vocal advocate for iran. but you mentioned you see sort of things get harder for iran possibly then coming back to turkey. and i'm wondering, what are the condit
